    Trust da man.
    ZD’s alias is actually Dr Synergy.
    he loaned me Saga, Vidar and Code-X and that chain amazes me to this day.

    Alright, alright I'll head toward the Schiit stack then, thanks!! :bow:

    As far as the mods go, I'll get there I'm sure, but one step at a time - all this headphone hi-fi stuff is new to me (other than all the great stuff I've read on this site of course), but looking forward to the rabbit hole.

    I just received a Fulla 2. I like it. I've been listening to The Rolling Stones "Exile on Main Street" this morning.
    The Fulla doesn't seem like much of a downgrade from a Magni 3/Modi 2, but I listen at pretty low volume at work so the lower power output is just fine. My only quibble is that sometimes if I unplug/replug my headphones into it, I also have to unplug/replug the power cable or my smartphone doesn't recognize the connection and wants to play the sound through the internal speaker. Not a huge issue.

    The biggest thing I've realized is how bad the headphone output sucks on my Moto phone. Even with KSC-75s the improvements with the Fulla are pretty noticeable. Through the phone headphone output, the sound is sort of a congealed FM radio kinda thing. With Fulla things sound right again.

    Low level channel balance seems like it was a little better with the Magni 3, but not a big deal.
